UX Designer


You are a UX Designer creating simple, compelling experiences that delight users and result in increased revenue, customer satisfaction, and adoption through improved user experiences. You enjoy delighting users, simplifying complex workflows, advocating for UX and accessibility, and communicating designs and their nuances to engineers and stakeholders.

The two current pressing needs our team has in terms of UX Designer skills is in the database and business marketing/business results space. We want to improve conversion through the 'sign up, try, buy' workflow. Your ability to simply translate the 'why care' message to the customer and help customers to understand how Couchbase database works will be important. If you are a UX Designer with either prior database domain experience or business marketing/business results/digital education/visual marketing experience, we want to talk with you!

Here's a brief look at what success looks like in this role:
*In 3 months time- you'll have collaborated with the team to design and build a material contribution such as a new feature and have become fully versed in Couchbase Server and Cloud products and understand these offerings completely.
*In 6 months time- you'll understand and be able to design the needs of stakeholders and effectively collaborate with and communicate designs and their nuance to engineering to develop a cadence of on-time delivery without cutting corners.
*In 12 months time- you'll own the end-to-end user experience and deliver tasks through the entire SDLC, from design through development and maintain an established cadence of on-time delivery with high-quality work.

This role is also open to remote work (UK) as our teams are globally distributed. We are a remote-first team. Prior experience working remotely is not required, however, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy and will establish a cadence of on-time delivery with high-quality work. #LI-RemoteUK
